Ad Frank


Prior to starting his solo career, singer/songwriter Advertisement Frank spent ten years within the Boston-based power pop band Kilometers Dethmuffen. Although bassist Linda Bean-Pardee was that band’s main singer, the majority of their tunes were created or co-written by Frank, whose periodic, dryly ironic business lead vocals complemented Bean-Pardee’s perfectly. Kilometers Dethmuffen documented three well-received albums — Nine-Volt Grape (1990), Mess (1994), and Kilometers Dethmuffen (1995) (in addition to 1992’s outstanding Mouth area of Hell 7″) — before changing their name towards the less-goofy (and much more forgettable) Permafrost in 1996. After Permafrost’s single recording, 1997’s In Harm’s Method, sank almost instantly upon launch, guitarist Kevin Coombs remaining the music group. Frank, Bean-Pardee, and drummer Adam Goodwin continuing like a trio for a limited period, but split up amicably before any fresh recordings were produced. Songs compiled by the trio but by no means documented by them show up on Frank’s 1st two single albums. Advertisement Frank’s self-titled single debut arrived around the Boston indie Jackass Information in 1999, having a fresh recording of Kilometers Dethmuffen’s 1995 track “Sleeping Handbag” along with a single acoustic edition of Romeo Void’s “Adobe flash Overflow” alongside a solid group of fresh originals. Bean-Pardee, Cindy Goh (of Jumprope), and Expenses Goffrier (from the Shame and Big Dipper) all visitor. The follow-up, Mister Fancypants, premiered in Apr 2001.
